Following the instructions for building the mc 16.5 I did what I was told and put a screw through the shear clamps at the bow and stern to hold them together wile gooing and stitching. When can I remove them?

Also, I have applied fillets, tape and two coats of epoxy to the inside...the epoxy does not paint/coat well. It is smooth in some spots and rough and pitted in others. Is this commmon?... avoidable? should I sand the interior prior to finishing? ...glassing the bottom would add a lot of weight?
